Data Liberate Founder Richard Wallis has been working with and around Schema.org since its inception in 2011. He is ideally placed to help and advise those wishing to extend and/or enhance the Schema.org vocabulary.
Whilst working in the Cultural Heritage sector, with OCLC Inc, he formed and Chaired the W3C Schema Bib Extend Community Group which was responsible for the development and introduction of the bibliographic extension to Schcema.org bib.schema.org.
As chair and/or member of several other W3C Community Groups focused on extending Schema.org, for Archives, Tourism, Finance, Sport, Academic Courses, Qualifications etc.; he has unique experience and understanding of the issues associated with translating the needs of specific domains into the generic needs and style of the Schema.org vocabulary.
As a long time and continuously active member of the community that supports, encourages, and moderates the development of Schema.org; Richard can provide significant insight into how to successfully propose enhancements, updates and extensions to the vocabulary.
His work on the technology and configuration supporting for the Schema.org website (as part of his Consultancy and Developer Advocate relationship with Google) includes the design, development, and support of the mechanism for introduction of vocabulary extensions.
Richard’s long and in-depth experience with Shema.org and its extension makes Data Liberate the ideal partner for those looking to either propose new updates to the vocabulary, or implement their own vocabulary using Schema.org as a foundation.
